I made a centering vise today, using a handscrew kit from Grizzly. I'll bring that to show. If anybody has a storebought centering vise, or the PHD vise I've heard so much about, I'd appreciate seeing those for comparison. Mine is a fairly rough prototype at the moment, but seems to work well.

I'll try to remember to bring my PHD vise. If I forget, I only live 15 minutes from WoodCraft so I can run to get it.

Hey just an off topic note. Harbor Freight is having a sidewalk sale today,. I noticed they have there 6" cross slide vice on sale for around $45.00. This is what I use on my drill press for drilling blanks. I paid $60.00 for mine several years ago. Warning you need a floor standing drill press to be able to loser the table enough for this vice it is huge.
